Coddenham is a village and civil parish in the Mid Suffolk district of Suffolk in eastern England. Located to the north of the A14 road, 8 miles north of Ipswich, the parish also includes the hamlet of Coddenham Green. In 2005 its population was 570, increasing to 620 at the 2011 Census. Village facilities include a village shop and café, a country club offering themed evenings, darts, pool and snooker, a pub, and the large and popular community & sports hall.
During the Roman occupation of Britain, Coddenham was the largest settlement in Suffolk. There were two Roman forts at the site at Baylham House, which was known as Combretovium. The Roman road from Colchester (then Camulodunum) to Caistor St Edmund (then Venta Icenorum) in Norfolk ran through the town. Today it is a rural village with good amenities, excellent countryside walks, and a large and well-equipped children's play area.
